I’ve been wearing my hair short for the past few years and I really like it because it’s so easy to take care of, but my daughter is getting married next May and I’m thinking I want a new style (to go along with my weight loss), so I’m going to have to go through that terrible stage of letting it grow out and then find another “look”.
Here’s some pictures of what it looks like now, plus some “before and after” pics. Yes, I’m proud! :) My next goal is to get rid of that extra chin! LOL The only style I can think to grow into would be like Lisa Rinna’s over the years….what do you think? Dee
This is hairstylist Billy Lowe for Fabulous After 40 and I think you look BEAUTIFUL inside and out . Thank you for filling us in on all your happenings and the wedding sounds super exciting. I can’t wait to see the pictures.
Like you, I’m growing my hair out – believe it or not – and yes, it’s super annoying. However, getting through the inbetween stages can be easier than you think by wearing more of a messy/unstructured look – which I’m a BIG fan of. Beauty doesn’t have to be mysterious. It’s actually quite easy.
Couple of pointers for you.
#1 – Cancel the highlights. I think your hair looks amazing w/ deeper tones. Gives more contrast to your skin, which makes skin look softer and eyes pop out.
#2 – Keep doing what you’re doing w/ the style – loosely blow-dry w/ fingers and shape using a mattifying clay or shaping wax. Nothing too goopy. Get one that’s stiff and more chalky.
#3 – Stay in contact w/ your stylist every 6 weeks for your trip or touch-up to be sure ends look good and all is healthy.
#4 – no last minute decisions the day before the wedding. That’s simply cause for disaster.
Send me pictures and let us know how you do.
